Surprise Visitor!

What am I staring at? Woman, open the window! Quick!
Can you see him now that the window is open? 

Kittehs! Guess what was outside my window? This was even better than Bird-tv. I dunno how he made it to the 4th floor, but I got a visit from a pretty monarch butterfly! There are no nice gardens around our building, which makes it even weirder. I've never seen a butterfly before. The peeps said when they owned their house, they had TONS of butterflies! Of course, since TW was the photographer, it's hard to actually make out the butterfly. The window screen also got in the way. I was staring him down pretty good until he'd had enough of the flashy box and left. I think we made another date; at least I hope we did. He sure was pretty. Does anyone know why they're called BUTTERflies. They do fly but this guy didn't look like he was made of butter.

That is a pretty butterfly. That is the best channel you can get. We don't get that butterfly channel. You are such a lucky kitty.
You asked about Tiger Lily and her name is now Two Two. Mom had to change it. Anyway, Two Two is going to be on the post for tomorrow. She is very silly. Take care.

You're so lucky to see a butterfly when you don't have a garden. I think butterflies are the best!

Mmmmmmm. He looks tasty!

I'm glad you found my photo fetching today, CK. It's rare that I can appeal to your softer side. Can you drop by later? I'll try my best to be all warm and vulnerable.

I've heard that butterflies do not taste like butter at all, but rather like moths, only sweeter.

What a wonderful day for you!! That is what we like to call over at Zee & Zoey world, an "O to E" moment. Meaning, your ordinary day became extraordinary because of seeing that beautiful butterfly!! (We know, because our human wrote a book all about that concept that stars us kitties... blah, blah, blah, we just like the butterfly!!)

Katnip Lounge said...

Now that's a SCORE! We can attest that moths are crunchy (and taste like chikkun)but we've never munched a Monarch.

Carolyn said...

You get the butterfly channel????!!!! WOW! your folks must pay premium rates :)

Hey CK, Jet here (I borrowed your nickname, hope you don't mind, I thought it was really cool.)

What a great surprise, can you imagine if one of those butterflies landed on your nose!!!

Katie Isabella said...

CK! Surely you wouldn't turn me in for 5000 dollars? Surely noe!

meowmeowmans said...

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi CK! Oh, no--I picked all my dust right here at home. The Human's housekeeping kinda sucks. She shoulda gotted a tabby or a calico, ha ha ha! XOXO

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Katie and Glogirly said...

Does he have a big butt?
hehe...
We're a little behind here. The girl was making movies all weekend long and gave me NO blog visitation time.
Sheesh...

Gloman has always wanted to shoot a monarch. (with his CAMERA.) But still hasn't gotten the perfect shot.
